The Mainstream Media Is Filled With Conspiracy Theories Regarding Trump’s Mysterious Visit To The Hospital
The Mainstream Media Is Filled With Conspiracy Theories Regarding Trump’s Mysterious Visit To The Hospital by Michael Snyder for The Economic Collapse Blog
On Saturday, President Trump made an unscheduled visit to Walter Reed Hospital. According to White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, Trump went through “a routine checkup as part of his annual physical”, and after about two hours he departed. If it was anyone else, this wouldn’t even be news. But when it comes to Trump, if there is any potential sign of weakness the mainstream media is going to jump all over it. Even though the White House insists that Trump is in perfect health, the mainstream media refuses to believe it. In fact, a CNN article about this incident claims that we can’t take anything that the Trump administration tells us at face value because of the “thousands of lies and deceptions” that the Trump administration has supposedly already promulgated…
Like a weekend worrier who shows up at the emergency room, President Donald Trump went to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center unannounced for what the White House says were supposedly routine tests. “He’s in good health and it was a routine checkup as part of his annual physical,” insisted White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.
Another administration might get the benefit of the doubt in such a case, but after thousands of lies and deceptions, this one deserves nothing of the sort.
Of course that article didn’t actually identify any examples of past “lies and deceptions” by the White House.
A reporter for the Los Angeles Times also accused the Trump administration of a “long history of false statements”…
“Perfect example of how the long history of false statements from White House has worn away any presumption of truthfulness,” David Lauter, the Los Angeles Times’ Washington bureau chief, tweeted. “Maybe Trump’s hospital visit was routine, but burden of proof is on WH to show evidence.”
What we are witnessing is extremely bizarre. The mainstream media is regularly accusing the president of the United States and those around him of being blatant liars, and they are making it very clear that we shouldn’t believe anything that they tell us.
Could you imagine if they had treated Barack Obama this way?
In order for our system of government to function properly, we need to be able to trust that our leaders are telling us the truth. If they are not telling us the truth, or if we feel like we are no longer able to trust them, our system is ultimately doomed to fail.
And with each passing day, the mainstream media is working very hard to erode our trust in the White House. NBC News seems to think that we should be suspicious of what happened at Walter Reed because it deviated from what Trump had done in the past…
Trump, 73, had no public events on his calendar Saturday and no advance guidance was given that he would be getting any kind of medical exam. Trump’s prior two physical exams as president were on the public schedule and advance warning was provided. In addition, those exams did not take place in multiple “phases.” Trump’s most recent physical was in February.
Trump arrived at the hospital at 2:45 p.m. Saturday and spent slightly more than two hours there. He was seen leaving with a tan envelope tucked in his arm. The full annual presidential physical typically takes several hours and is unlikely to be described as a “quick exam and labs,” which is how White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham explained the visit afterward.
And Jonathan Wackrow of CNN pointed out that the medical unit at the White House “could easily accommodate most of what is needed in an annual physical“…
